All Teachers,
Please give your comment to this sentence:
"Their hearts are places to worship God."
How do you understand this sentence? Is the grammar correct? Could it be "Their hearts is a place to...."?

Thank you

You don't have to be in any special place to do it. You can do it in your heart (figuratively speaking).

Teacher Ronbee,
Can I also say: "Their hearts is place to ...."?
or is it better to say: Their hearts are the palces to..."?

Thank u once again

Dear YOJ:

How about: 'The heart is the place to worship God.' or 'God is truly worshipped in the heart.'

In any case, you cannot say, 'hearts is', because 'hearts' is a plural word.
